About Paula

I enjoy organic cooking, reading, and trips to the beach. I grew up and attended college in Beijing. Before making Kauai my home, I worked and lived for over 10 years in Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Australia.

Paula purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Paula chose South Shore

The Poipu Beach Estates community believes that green open spaces is more important than development and density. As a result, you won't suffer through the typical space constraints of the hotel district in Poipu Beach. If you like your space, quite, and privacy, this is the cottage for you.

This custom built house has beautiful mountain and ocean views, and refreshing breezes day and night. It is also very close to the best beaches, restaurants grocery (Kukui'ula shopping center is just around the corner), sightseeing, with a golf course (The Kiahuna golf club) also literally next door.

The house is fully loaded with amenities and it is brand new (April 2014 construction completed), so you can be assured it is comfortable and relaxing. I have included all items necessary for cooking, washing, dining, and more importantly trips to the beach !

What makes this cottage unique

Hale O'Neita is a private cottage (1 rental in the cottage) with a full sized kitchen. It is brand new, quiet, clean, and provides Ocean views from the balcony and Mountain views from the kitchen. It is in a very low density community.

Hale O'Neita is close to the best beaches (Waiohai, Lawai beach and others), restaurants (Merriman's, Josselin's Tapas Bar & Grill at Kukui'ula), Shopping (Kukui'ula next door), Golf (Kiahuna next door), Hiking (Waimea Canyon.)

Guestbook comments from the manager

Perfect, perfect, perfect!!! We had never before rented a place, but Paula's cottage -- her description and the photographs -- pulled us in to give it a try. And we're very glad we did. Her description and photographs were spot on. Paula was a delight to work with and is very responsive. She is an excellent hostess who ensures that her guests are well taken care of, and she wants to know about even the slightest concern (we had none). Access to the cottage was quite simple, and Paula provided easy-to-follow driving instructions from the airport in Lihue. The cottage is very new, modern, and well-constructed. The location is very good (maybe a 1-2 minute drive to the beach) with the biggest advantage being no crowds and quiet. Paula mentioned beforehand there was ongoing construction next door, but this was not a problem for us, as the builders didn't really seem to get going until 7:45-8 am, and even then, it simply wasn't that loud (the builders seem mostly done with the exterior construction and now building the interior). Anyway, the inside of Paula's cottage is delightful, sunny, and very clean. Because the sun sets early, the cottage is very dark at night for great sleeping. The kitchen seemed well-stocked with all the utensils and pots one may need, and the bathroom is neatly syled with clean, modern lines and plenty of fluffy towels, various soap amenities, Q-tips and more, and a hair dryer. The shower is too die for, much better than our shower at home! The bed is extremely comfortable, and the linens are clean and are the appropriate weight for the climate. The air con works great, but we only needed it for a few hours the first day, as the cross breeze at night through the window/door screens was just perfect. Paula even keeps the magazines and TV guide up to date, if one chooses to read. There is a washer and dryer on the first floor for convenient washing. As far as outdoor activities, Paula has thought of everything for a fun day at the beach, such as snorkle gear, large towels, stout umbrella, folding chairs, sand mats, and ice chest. Upon returning to the cottage after our beach romp, there is a convenient double-sided outdoor shower for washing off sand, right next to the entryway. There appears a very nice barbeque for outdoor grilling, but we didn't have a chance to partake. Paula's attention to detail is what makes this cottage a perfect nesting place for a lovely time on the South Shore. We highly recommend staying here a

Nice spot in Poipu. Clean, comfortable and nice sunset views. Paula was very welcoming when we arrived and prombt in replying

when we had a question. We enjoyed our visit here and will rent this property again! The place has everything you need. A treat for us

was the rain shower head and what seemed like instant hot water in the shower. Loved that :) We walked to the beach every morning.

And the Living Foods Market is just a short walk away as well. Perfect spot!

An ideal place to stay

  • 5 of 5

It has taken me some time to complete this review, because part of me wants to keep this amazing place secret! We rented for 3weeks in 2016, and we've rebooked for 4weeks in 2017. The apartment is clean, ideally furnished and equipped. It's just large enough for two people. It is bright and airy, and the cooling breezes come through without the need for a/c. Thank you Paula for this great place!

Property was clean and well-organized and full of necessities.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Hale O'Neita. The location was perfect for access to Poipu Beach, Shipwrecks Beach, and other hot spots on the South Shore. Paula went to great lengths to make sure our stay was comfortable and that we had everything we needed. She also made recommendations of things to see and places to go, as well as items to bring, best grocery stores, medical facilities, etc.

The description provided on VRBO was very detailed and accurate. When I arrived I almost felt like I had already been there before! I would definitely recommend this property to visitors of Kauai!

Loved the unit. Is upstairs over a garage which means there is no one around you like a hotel would be. Very quiet neighborhood. We walked down to the beach but if you want to actually use a beach the best one is about 2miles away.

Unit was very clean and appointed as described. Paula was very responsive by text although we had no need for help she did check in with us several times. Nice bathroom and very comfortable bed. We come from very dry environment so air conditioning at night was very nice. Loved the porch for early morning coffee. Could not have been better.
